According to variety.com, the light, honey-toned, long-planked wood flooring immediately brightens the home the instant you walk in the door. It leads you from the front door, down the elongated entryway, and into the openness of the rest of the living space. The front door boasts the same color and long wood planks with brass door handle. Skylights add to the bright entry and more can be found throughout the home, but the unique geometric light fixture hanging from above, adds to the light and brightness of the space, and to the beautiful decor theme that’s apparent from the entry room on.

A long island serves as a multi-function area for prepping food and eating, with three plush bar-style chairs tucked up under one side. The two canister light fixtures are a charming farm-style touch and the open shelving on wither side of the range give the kitchen a warm and inviting appeal.
